On my phone I frequently get redirected to obvious scam sites offering "virus cleaners" while browsing the forum.
Doesn't happen while I'm at my pc, only at my phone.

If it's possible to remove the redirecting ads that would be great.

I believe it's the ad's fault, not ours. The website is not optimized for phone devices and I don't think we can do anything about this issue.

On most sites which run ads you'll get redirected to another pages while using the phone, also happens to me.
Message me if you'd like to join our official Discord server!

It's entirely to do with the ads. What happens is that a hacker will find a badly coded link in the ad, e.g. www.dotfire.com, then they will purchase that domain, and have it redirect to whatever scam site they want.
